Vikings’ Allen Fined; Harvin Practices
Viking defensive end Jared Allen was fined $21,000 for a hard block against Chicago guard Lance Louis in Sunday’s game against the Bears. Allen hit Louis blind sided after Antoine Winfield picked off a pass from Jay Cutler. Louis’ left leg was stuck in the turf and he tore his ACL and is out for the season.
Viking receiver Percy Harvin was limited in practice Wednesday as he’s trying to come back from a sprained left ankle. Harvin has missed the last 2 games with the injury and was seen limping during practice Wednesday. Tight end Kyle Rudolph did not practice for the Vikings Wednesday but safety Harrison Smith was limited in practice Wednesday. Both Rudolph and Smith passed their post concussion tests Wednesday.
